Editorial Reviews

Part of the "Maneater Film Series," In the Spider’s Web is a thriller that is sure to make your skin crawl and the hairs on the back of your neck rise. When a team of backpackers sets out to explore the Indian jungles, one of them is bitten by a poisonous spider. Forced to seek the help of Dr. Lecorpus (3 time Golden Globe nominee Lance Henriksen, Aliens), an American physician living in a local village, the group quickly discovers that the village has several secrets. As they learn of a venomous ritual in which a crawling army of spiders feasts on dead corpses, they unravel Dr. Lecorpus involvement in the ritual and his plans which are beyond anything any of them could have imagined. Now available for the first on DVD, with its dense jungles, marauding natives, mad scientists, screaming teens, and amassing arachnids, In the Spider’s Web is a gleefully entertaining creep-fest that’s as tough to shake loose as a tarantula in your hair.

One day I watched a film called Night Feeders and found some real talent at work. I had a similar feeling with this film. Lance Henriksen (the only actor whose name is used in the packaging) is a mysterious doctor living with a jungle tribe. A jungle tour runs afoul of a spider and they go to the native village for medical help. These natives worship spiders as gods and Lance seems to have some similar feelings. Some of the tour stay in the village and some go back to civilization for additional help. Eventually we find out what Lance is up to and we get a pretty good resolution.

The story is not great but it has some interesting twists and traits. Like with Night Feeders an unexpected character rises to the top. This character is one of my current favorites from recent movies and shows that the makers were willing to try something different. The rest of the film is not as good as Night Feeders in originality and has a few problems. For some reason the natives who worship the spiders also eat them. In one scene Lance looks like he is participating, even chewing, although the effects team, or someone, let the spider be seen going right past his head instead of into his mouth. There is no explanation as to why the natives are helping Lance and he seems to have no real power over them. I guess they were going for a little Doctor Moreau. But overall it is an okay film and worth it for that one special character. Check it out.

It would be great if the scriptwriter for a horror movie, just for once, allowed the characters to act "rationally" rather than insanely stupid. Here is what sane people do not do:
1) Tromp through a thick jungle that is covered in massive spider webbing "everywhere"!
2) Camp out in the middle of a jungle underneath a massive spider web canopy!
3) Trust an eccentric "medical" doctor living in a remote village full of "spider-worshippers."
4) Not think it odd that said eccentric "medical" doctor keeps grossly long finger nails on only one of his hands, and has a brother who runs around with his head covered beneath a thick net of spider webbing who also has grossly long finger nails on the same hand!
5) Attempt to rationalize everything you know "ain't" right about this village and doctor!
6) Come upon a temple cavern whose entrance is shaped like the jaws and legs of a spider - and then dash right inside to see what's in there!
7) Wonder around in a cavern covered from top to bottom in massive spider webbing - and then keep going in deeper!
8) Behave as if you are in "Disneyland" with all the cool attractions!
9) Crash a party of "spider-worshippers" engaged in... well... spider worship!
Despite the cliché of people doing insanely dumb things in a horror movie and getting exactly what insanely dumb people deserve, the film still manages to have its share of odd twists and creepiness - especially if you are an arachnophobe. Even if you are not particularly afraid of spiders, you might be at the end of this film.

Yet another terrific outing from the Maneaters series, a collection of made for TV movies about animals going amok that originally aired on Sci Fi channel. That sentence, by the way, should give you some idea what to expect from this movie, in terms of budget, plot and... well pretty much everything else. Nonetheless, its an enjoyable movie. I mean, for $10 what do you expect, right?

So take your standard plot... a group of American teens go tramping about the jungles of India. One gets bit by a spider, goes to find a village doctor, and they get wrapped up in a mysterious spider worshipping cult that steals people's organs and sells them on the black market... All that, and you've got swarms of CGI-spiders running about. Oh, and of course plastic spiders and fake spider webbing too... you know, like the type you can buy as Halloween decorations. Despite the insanity of the movie, its actually pretty fun in a cheesy way. It also stars Lance Henriksen, which only added to the appeal for me.

I can only imagine the budget they must have had while filming this. Although set in India, my first guess would be that it was actually filmed in Thailand. Especially since theres only one Indian actor in the film, and the villagers look more like a bunch of people from Southeast Asia clad in loinclothes and turbans. Still, I didn't go into it looking for scientific or cultural accuracy. Its just a cheap 'animal attack of the week' type film, but a fun one at that. So keep up the good work, and look for more of the Maneaters movies, because thus far they've all been pretty good (or bad maybe).

There are LOTS of creepy crawly spiders in this average spider flick. Six backpackers on a vacation in some unnamed country stumble into a jungle with aome pretty vicious spiders. When one of them is bitten by a spider, they seek help from a reclusive mysterious doctor (Lance Henriksen, who seems to take any role these days), and they find all is not as it seems.
The plot tries for originality with its harvested organs storyline, but it's basically an exercise in let's get the heck out of here. The spider fx are pretty creepy and the movie has good production values. Fans of the genre should be sufficiently satisfied.
